Ensemble RX II with 455kHz IF added
- I have ordered my Ensemble RX II kit and excited to get this unit to mostly
learn about SDR and use it as the first phase of my longer goal. I also ordered
the additional IF Center Frequency 464 kHz for 455 kHz IF frequency chip with
for the second phase of this project / experiment.
I ultimately would like to tap into the 455 kHz IF of my ICOM 7200 to build a
general purpose PAN adapter. I know there are a lot of Kenwoods that do this
type of function, but I cannot seem to obtain collateral information on how this
is done on an ICOM. I do have the service manual for the 7200 and can find the
location of the circuit on the board, but I have to admit I am little spooked
with doing this myself based on my lack of experience. I have the soldering
skills and have built several other projects in the past, but not any SMD.
Any information is appreciated.
